Lock N’ Load Motorcycle Wheel Chock – BK1000


Hi I’m Ken with HitchSource.com, today
we’re with Cecil Cook founder and President of Lock N’ Load. Lock ‘N Load
wheel chocks are one of our most popular products. It makes loading, securing, and
towing your motorcycle an easy one-person job. Let’s load a bike and see how it works.
Okay, you bring your wheel chock out. Two bolts tie it down, you’re ready to go.
Now you bring your bike into the wheel chock. Get off the bike and it’s
stable enough, it sits there by itself so it allows you to put the front strap on.
What I always recommend doing is, because you may have picked up some rode film or
something, is putting it back behind center. Tighten it up and now the front
end is secured ready to go. You’ll notice that it sits off the ground here. The
reason for that is now you have the weight of the front end of the bike holding the bike in place. The very unique feature about my system is;
everybody put straps on the handlebars stretches them down, there buddy sitting
on the bike and you keep ratcheting. Pretty soon you’ve got the
seals so tight then when you go down the road you hit a railroad track or
something eventually you’re gonna blow the seals out on the bike. My system
loves the front end to float the way it’s supposed to. Then you come back to
tie down the back of the bike. Probably the most important thing to
think about when you’re putting your system in place, when you tighten this up,
you want to be pulling the bike into the wheel chock not behind it where you’re
trying to pull the bike out of the wheel chock. It’s very difficult because
there’s so many different bikes out with so many accessories to tell you where to
hook the back strap. So my recommendation, is you want to get as high on the bike
as you can and this far away from the bike as you can, because that gives you a
nice angle you may end up having to go buy a set of soft straps to utilize to
hook onto the frame somewhere then hook the strap into the soft strap. All you’re
trying to do in the back of the bike is keep it from sliding when you go around
the corner or bouncing when you hit a railroad track or some bad road. So, you
need to put very little tension on the back of the bike I mean as you see these
are not very tight and the bike is certainly stable. So, now that we’ve
loaded the bike and we’ve driven to our destination what do we do next how we
unload this thing. Okay, time to get the bike out. First thing we do is come up
take strap off the front tire. You see, it still got the straps on the
back, but it’s totally stable just like it was when you originally pulled it
in. The next thing you do is, just in case something might have shifted on the
trip, what I do is I take off one side. Everything’s fine go over and take off
the other side. It’s still nice and stable. Now get on the bike give it a
good jerk, the bike comes out of the wheel chock, back your bike down the ramp
and ready to go, you’re done. How do you take them out of the trailer? Two bolts!
Take them loose, the chalk slides off of the plate. So now, the only thing left
in the trailer is the plate. You come here, again this is very unique. Has a system
set up so where take your straps off, so the only thing left when you’re done
is a d-ring and the quick-release plate. One of the most common questions we get
from our customers is, is the wheel chock compatible with my bike? What are the
what are the factors that make it compatible or incompatible with the
wheel chock? 99% of the time when I get asked that question, my response is, it
will work on any standard motorcycle off the showroom floor. Custom bikes you may
have a problem with, because of the depending on the fender, but the Honda
Goldwing the Harley Ultra Classic are the two most common asked. Will it work
on my Honda will work on my, absolutely! Any standard Harley off the showroom floor,
Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, it will work just fine on. How easy is it to get this
motorcycle onto the, onto the wheel chock and get down the road? One of my
claims is, after you’ve done it a couple of times,
you, your wife, your girlfriend, whomever, should be able to take the bike, drive it
into the wheel chock, tie it down, close the trailer door, and be down the road, in
less than 60 seconds. The Lock N’ Load wheel chock system
comes in three different flavors, we have the BK-1000, which is the full package
with the rear tie-downs as well as the the front wheel chock in the front
tie-down. The BK-100 is just the front part of the system and then the
BK-500 is a dirt bike version of the carrier and that has, it’s designed for
narrower tires and taller tires it’s good for both dirt bikes and for dual
sport bikes. You can find these and all the accessories that Cecil’s mentioned
on our website at HitchSource.com

  1. Question for you… how is strapping the front of bike down using the handlebars or frame, any different than the shocks going in and out during a ride.  I'm not understanding the difference.  There's talk of "blowing the seals".  How is that done, during a tie down, but not out on the open road during a ride?

  2. So four bolts through the floor for the black plate… and then two black plastic knobs to hold the orange chock to the black plate?  It appears to me that the plastic knobs are a weak link, or no?  Please explain.

  3. I locked the front wheel in the chock, but when towing the whole trailer started oscillating due to the bike's suspension floating as I went over expansion strips on the interstate. Any suggestions?
